China’s Disgusting Profiteering From Coronavirus Spread Exposed

Several reports over the past couple of days have exposed how China is profiteering hugely from the coronavirus that it failed to contain, and the severity of the spread that the communist state lied about.

The New York Post reported on Sunday that China blocked US manufacturers from exporting personal protective equipment (PPE), which was desperately needed to protect health care workers in the hardest hit areas.

“Leading US manufacturers of medical safety gear told the White House that China prohibited them from exporting their products from the country as the coronavirus pandemic mounted.” the report states.

“Executives from 3M and Honeywell told US officials that the Chinese government in January began blocking exports of N95 respirators, booties, gloves and other supplies produced by their factories in China,” The Post further reported.

A senior administration official told reporters that “China paid the manufacturers their standard wholesale rates, but prohibited the vital items from being sold to anyone else.”

The report explains that “China was trying to ‘corner the world market’ in personal protective equipment”  and also “imported $1.2 billion worth of  ‘epidemic prevention and control materials’ from the end of January through the end of February.”

“Data from China’s own customs agency points to an attempt to corner the world market in PPE like gloves, goggles, and masks through massive increased purchases – even as China, the world’s largest PPE manufacturer, was restricting exports.” the administration official added.

The report notes that the Trump administration is considering legal action against China, with senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis remarking that “People are dying. When you have intentional, cold-blooded premeditated action like you have with China, this would be considered first-degree murder.”

Michael Wessell of the federal US-China Economic and Security Review Commission, also slammed China, noting that American medical professionals are “starved of PPE to fight this crisis” because of the communist country’s actions.

“We understand that China has engaged in policies to try and not only develop its own capabilities, but to do so at expense of producers around the world,” Wessell said, adding that “At a time when demand was rising to deal with the crisis, China was marshaling all of the products for its own use.”

“[China is] using it for soft power, essentially saying it’s a humanitarian gesture to try to curry goodwill with American people when some of the problems we’re facing are the direct result of Chinese policies,” Wessell added.

The AFP reports that “China has sold nearly four billion masks to foreign countries since March” as well as 37.5 million pieces of protective clothing, 16,000 ventilators and 2.84 million COVID-19 testing kits, all at a value of approximately 10.2 billion yuan ($1.4 billion).

Several of the over 50 countries that China has sold equipment to have reported the equipment to be defective, with evidence even suggesting that some of it was contaminated with coronavirus.

Chinese officials have claimed that the reports of faulty equipment “did not reflect the full facts”.

“In reality there are various factors, such as China having different standards and different usage habits to other countries. Even improper use can lead to doubts over quality,” said Jiang Fan, an official with the Ministry of Commerce.

Perhaps the most disgusting exposé of China’s profiteering was documented in a report by The Spectator, which found that Italy donated tons of Personal Protective Equipment to China to help the communist state protect its own population when the virus first hit. However, when Italy quickly became the worst hit country on the planet, China did not return the favour, instead SELLING the same equipment back to Italy at an inflated price.

The report notes:

After COVID-19 made its way to Italy, decimating the country’s significant elderly population, China told the world it would donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help Italy stop its spread. Reports later indicated that China had actually sold, not donated, the PPE to Italy. A senior Trump administration official tells The Spectator that it is much worse than that: China forced Italy to buy back the PPE supply that it gave to China during the initial coronavirus outbreak.

‘Before the virus hit Europe, Italy sent tons of PPE to China to help China protect its own population,’ the administration official explained. ‘China then has sent Italian PPE back to Italy — some of it, not even all of it … and charged them for it.’

China’s behaviour has been reprehensible, with both the US and British governments warning that there will be a reckoning.

However, the UN has rewarded the communist state with a seat at the human rights council, and the World Health Organisation defended China’s actions, and parroted it’s propaganda about the virus spread for weeks.

Panel Says WHO Could Have Saved Over 3 Million Lives by Recommending Border Controls Earlier

Health body suggested it was racist to impose travel restrictions in early weeks of pandemic.

An independent panel has ruled that the World Health Organization, which in January 2020 suggested it was racist to impose border controls to stop the spread of COVID-19 , could have saved over 3 million lives if it had recommended travel restrictions earlier.

The panel has released a report entitled ‘COVID-19: Make it the Last Pandemic’ which concludes that the month of February was “lost” because most countries failed to stop the international flow of people coming from heavily infected regions.

“The situation we find ourselves in today could have been prevented,” said panel co-chair Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, adding, “It is due to a myriad of failures, gaps and delays in preparedness and response.”

The report notes that Chinese doctors reported cases of unusual pneumonia in December 2019 and yet on January 14, the WHO amplified Chinese state propaganda that there was “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission” of the virus.

According to the panel of experts, the WHO should have declared an international health emergency during their first meeting on January 22nd and imposed travel restrictions.

In late January 2020, despite declaring a global health emergency, the WHO released a statement explicitly advising against “any travel or trade restriction based on the current information available.”

“Countries are cautioned against actions that promote stigma or discrimination, in line with the principles of Article 3 of the IHR,” said the organization in a statement.

In other words, because the feelings of Chinese people may have been hurt, the WHO told countries not to impose border controls, despite evidence now proving that such measures stop the spread of COVID-19 more effectively than lockdowns.

As we also highlighted at the time, numerous politicians in America suggested throughout February that it was bigoted to advise against mass gatherings at Chinese new year festivals in major cities.

In Europe, authorities were even encouraging people to hug Chinese people as late as March under the guise of virtue signaling anti-racism campaigns.

In October last year, the New York Times reported that the WHO’s decision not to advise early border closures was based on “politics,” not science.

A Mount Sinai study found that New York City’s record-high coronavirus cases and deaths were “predominately” due to travel from Europe, meaning that many more lives could have been saved if borders had been closed down earlier.

Video: CNN’s Cooper Accuses Rand Paul Of ‘Disrespecting Medical Science’ For Questioning Fauci

Senator says Fauci is “leading you on to believe something that’s not true”

Following another confrontation between Senator Rand Paul and White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci Tuesday, during which Paul questioned Fauci about his extensive ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, CNN’s Anderson Cooper declared that Paul should “have more respect at least for medical science.”

Reporting on the exchange, the CNN host proclaimed that Paul is “an ophthalmologist. You would think that he would be — have more respect at least for medical science.”

It’s unclear how asking valid questions about Fauci and the NIH’s funding of the Wuhan lab where dangerous experiments on bat coronaviruses were being conducted represents a disrespect for science.

Cooper later repeated Fauci’s claim that Paul and other GOP Senators are “playing to the cameras.”

“The idea that Fauci is somehow a villain to Trump-allied politicians. What does one even say to that idea?” Cooper proclaimed.

Cooper also stated “We should also point out, Dr. Fauci, in his exchange with Sen. Paul, did stress that he fully supports further investigation into the origins of COVID-19.”

Watch:

Commenting on his latest exchange with Fauci, Paul himself stressed that Fauci “was being dishonest.

“In fact, one of the main papers published by Dr. Shi in the Wuhan Institute says in the byline, “Funded by the NIH,” and funded specifically by the NIAI which is AID, which is Fauci’s group,” Paul urged.

“So, no, he completely dissembled on that. He’s leading you on to believe something that’s not true,” The Senator added.

Watch:

As Infowars reported in April 2020, the NIH awarded a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct coronavirus gain of function research.

Additionally, the results of the US-backed gain of function research at Wuhan was published in 2017 under the heading, “Discovery of a rich gene pool of bat SARS-related coronaviruses provides new insights into the origin of SARS coronavirus.”

Fauci has come under increased scrutiny as the NIH’s involvement with the Wuhan lab is being called into question.

Tucker Carlson Calls For Investigation Into Fauci Wuhan Lab Connection

“Why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has called for The White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci to be investigated concerning his links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origins of the coronavirus.

In a monologue Monday, Carlson asserted that Fauci allowed the pandemic to happen by ‘exploiting a loophole that allowed him to fund research at the Wuhan Lab that likely became COVID-19’.

Carlson was responding to Fauci again suggesting that it’s “possible” mask mandates could continue indefinitely.

“Tony Fauci is punishing the country — you, us, everyone. The question is: why is he doing that?” Carlson asked, suggesting “Maybe he liked it, that’s possible. But you’ve got to think that at least part of Fauci’s authoritarian germ hysterical is a cover for something else. Could it be that Tony Fauci is trying to divert attention from himself and his own role in the COVID-19 pandemic?”

The host then pointed to an article by science writer Nicholas Wade that outlines how Fauci approved dangerous research at the Wuhan facility, that many believe led directly to the coronavirus outbreak.

“Tony Fauci had authorized payment for the research. For five years — from 2014 to 2019 — the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Fauci runs, and has for decades, pumped money to a group called the EcoHealth Alliance,” Carlson continued.

“The EcoHealth Alliance, run by a man called Dr. Peter Daszak, contracted with Dr. Shi to conduct gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab,” Tucker further explained.

“Millions of people have died of COVID-19, so it’s not a matter of score-settling or blame-assignment to figure out where it came from. If you want to prevent the next global pandemic, you have to figure out how this one started,” Carlson added, noting “This wouldn’t have happened if Tony Fauci didn’t allow it to happen. That is clear.”

He concluded “In a functional country, there would be a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country, changing it forever. So why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”
